Google announces a lot of updates and changes, including a new name for things

Yesterday afternoon Google announced a ton of updates and one big new thing - a new name for Google Apps. It is now "G Suite". They also changed the name for all of their services to Google Cloud.

It is a name change to better align with all of their offerings and products and the services and apps are still the same. Different name, same great products. The name change has already gone out in the Admin help page, Google+ community and more.

For Google for Education, there are now 4 areas - G Suite for Education (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, Gmail, Calendar, Drive), Classroom, Chromebooks, and Content (Creative Apps).

There were also some announcements with product and feature updates:
